The weight of our body and the drag of the water will act as counter balance. On the beach the only thing we have is our body and a hard landing on the sand.
I have seen many (beginners) doing S´s with the kite wile they are learning on the beach, yesterday there where 2 new students doing it, is that normal? One little mistake and you go flying Xmeters.
Thanks for all the help,

Definitely adjust your bridle line lengths. Silly manufacturer had it all screwed up anyway.
Then be sure to do all those figure 8's while on the beach. Really work it dude. You won't learn anything keeping your kite at 12.
Anything you overhear other instructors saying really isn't for you anyway. You've got skills bro. Just get out there and go for it!
And that 12m havoc? Sure it's a classic, but what is stopping you from shopping for the true classics? Get your self a nice two line kite with a pulley bar from 1998 or so. Those babies were absolutely cutting edge. Somebody's gotta have one lying around they'll sell you. Cheap too. What a crazy world we live in.
Cutting edge, advanced technology. Practically free.
Imagine how cool you will look dragging that museum piece onto the beach. Dude! What's the hold up?
Then you can post, like, 50 more times on here about how you'll be tweaking your awesome new (old) kite to make it sorta fly.
Yeah! Go for it!!
